Russia claims Syria chemical attack was staged by BRITAIN and insists it had ‘proof’

Neal Baker and Mark Hodge – April 13, 2018

RUSSIA has sensationally accused Britain of STAGING the deadly chemical attack in Syria last week.

The chlorine and nerve agent bombing of Eastern Ghouta on Saturday left at least 70 dead — but the Russian-backed Syrian regime has denied involvement.

Now Moscow’s defence ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov has claimed the Kremlin has evidence that Britain has staged the attack.

He said: “We have… evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organising this provocation.”

Konashenkov released statements, supposedly from medics working at Douma’s hospital, who allege a group of people holding video cameras entered the medical facility, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons.
